That doesn't indicate what you said:

But I've discovered that there is also bsd-xdr on googlecode, which I
might add to muslin down the road.

BTW, Rich, here's what that page says about iconv:
| The R usage requires iconv to be able to translate between "latin1"

| and to translate to and from the Unicode wide-character formats
| "UCS-[24][BL]E"
How much of this should musl support?
